Good morning,

This sounds like the idle air control valve is sticking causing the engine to surge forward.

I attached the procedure for you to follow below and pictures of the valve on the throttle body.

Important: The powertrain control module (PCM) will reset the IAC valve whenever the ignition is turned On, then Off. Turn the ignition on for 10 seconds, then Off for 5 seconds.
